Winter quarter Course Design Institute signup available

Sessions will help faculty with Q2S transition

Academic Technologies (AT) and the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) are co-facilitating the Winter Course Design Institute (CDI) for faculty.

This is an intensive institute that will provide participants with assistance and tools to design or redesign a course of their choosing. Sessions will occur over five consecutive Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon, beginning Feb. 1 and ending Feb. 29. The sessions will take place in the Faculty Commons located at 301U Alden Library.

By the end of the CDI, participants will have created the basic structure of a newly designed course, including plans for a syllabus, assignments, assessment tools, and a course outline. They also will have interacted with a diverse group of their colleagues from across the University, which will allow them to share and learn teaching tips with their peers.
Facilitators and participants will work together in an online environment, so a personal notebook/laptop will be required, although one can be provided if needed.

Participation is limited to 12 people and preference will be given to registrants who are able to attend all five meetings. Several slots have already been filled. The CDI sessions also will be offered during spring quarter and those dates will be announced soon.

The CDI is modeled after Ohio State's successful Course and Curriculum Design Institutes, which were created in preparation for their transition from quarters to semesters.
